POKE Kids Gone Wild: Pokemon World Championship Edition

If you thought the Olympics were a big deal, clearly you haven’t heard of the Pokemon World Championship which pits savage children against each other in a battle for total supremacy. Taking place and concluding in Hawaii last week, children of all ages (up to the age of 32) brought their best Pokemon trading card and video game skills to the global competition.

This video gives us a glimpse of the goings-on within the championship, like the legion of kids wielding Pokemon apparel, adults in Pokemon costumes parading about, and children banging their fists against their heads in agonizing defeat.
